Philip Stott on Climate-Change (Or What Used to be Called, Global-Warming

"Climate-change is governed by hundreds of factors, or variables, and the very idea that we can manage climate-change  predictably by understanding at the the margins one politically selected factor (CO2), is as misguided as it gets."...That is perfect, folks, the fact that these idiots are totally ignoring solar variations (cycles, sunspots, magnetic energy, winds, etc.), the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, the North Pacific Index, planetary perturbations, plate tectonics, underwater volcanoes, the fact that we haven't had a major volcanic eruption (on land) in over 20 years, plate tectonics, bacteria, C14 isotopes, galactic factors, cosmic dust and rays, cloud cover, etc., etc. AND THE PLAIN FACT THAT WE'RE STILL LISTENING TO THEM. Unbelievable.

"We" may be listening, but what are we doing? Cap-and-trade is pretty much dead, isn't it?

I can't imagine it ever passing the Senate. The cost (economic AND political) is just too high and the benefits way too meager.

Yeah, even the leftists/progressives have turned their back on it.

And wasn't Kyoto voted down 90-something to nothing, too?
